Remembrance Day – 11.11.2020

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
 
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.
 
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
 
Today, we remembered those who fought for our country and died in the different wars: WW1, WW2 and more. Remembrance day marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. Remembrance Sunday is also marked each year, this falls on the second Sunday in November. This morning, we planted poppies where we had written names of the fallen soldiers to remember them and to think about what they sacrificed for our country. At 11am, we stood up in class, stopped for a moment and had a 2 minute silence where we paid our respects to all of those who have died in conflict.
 
Lest We Forget.
